Chemical Birth Defects

Chemical birth defects include such things as cleft lip or palate, missing or not fully developed organs, leukemia, limbs that are deformed or missing, cancer of the eye and an abnormal brain or spine. Being exposed to certain chemicals while pregnant can bring about such defects in your newborn. A man exposed to chemicals can also increase the risk of having a child with such a defect.

There are high risk occupations that are surrounded by dangerous chemicals which are acknowledged causes of these defects. Dry cleaners, florists, mechanics, beauticians, x-ray technicians, printers and painters, as well as those that work around gasoline or electronic chip manufacturing plants, can all be at risk. Prescription drugs, including antidepressants, can also cause birth defects. If you were exposed to dangerous chemicals which you feel caused your newborn's birth defect, retain the services of a California birth injury lawyer.

Compensation for Your Baby's Pain and Suffering

Having a child that suffers from a birth injury or defect can be devastating to your entire family. The quality of life of your baby may be poor and in the worst case, a wrongful death may occur. Your emotional stress, your infant's pain and suffering and the economic burden you will face having to furnish long term medical care for your child can be very hard to bear.

At Bostwick & Peterson LLP, we feel that the responsible party for your child's chemical birth defect needs to be held accountable and that should be compensated to ease the burden you now face. In our 60 plus years of combined experience, we have produced countless favorable outcomes for our personal injury and medical malpractice clients and would like to offer our services to you and your family.

Contact a California medical malpractice attorney if you feel that your newborn's birth defect was caused by chemical exposure by a negligent party.
